Your Visual Guide to Weed Measurements
Now that legalization is finally here, you’re off to make your first purchase of cannabis. But the terminology can get a little confusing. As a beginner cannabis user, you may feel a little overwhelmed by all the information that’s available now that you can legally buy weed and marijuana products. From different strains, to CBD oil, to edible products – it can be a lot to make sense of when you’re buying for the first time. A good place to start is by understanding all the measurements of weed.
But what weed measurements do you need to know? Without having some knowledge of how cannabis is weighed out, you won’t know how much you’re getting. And if you’re going to consume weed, knowing what weights cannabis is sold in will make it easier to buy the right amount.
From metric to US measurements – a gram, an eighth, a quarter, or an ounce? How much weed is in a pre-roll? And what about cannabis concentrates…how much weed is in these extracts? To make it even more confusing – the difference in density, size, and concentration can be a little misleading even for seasoned cannabis users.
Understanding the different measurements of how cannabis is sold helps you purchase pot like a pro. You’ll know exactly what you’re getting when you buy an eighth of marijuana bud or a gram of cannabis extract. This infographic from Marijuana Doctors breaks it down for you with all the information you need to know about weed measurements.
